OMNI SOURCE IMAGES
Fine Art Photography for Indoor/Outdoor Spaces
by Greg Linhares
Archival Aluminum Prints (or MetalPrints) are a new fine-art medium which preserves images by infusing archival dyes directly into (rather than on top of) specially coated aluminum sheets. The image is transferred into the metal with a tremendous amount of heat and pressure, transforming the dye into a gas which then penetrates the ultra-hard, scratch-resistant, clear-coated surface. The colors are so incredibly vibrant, and the luminance is absolutely breathtaking. Light falling onto the surface is reflected back out and illuminates the art as if looking through a real window or high-definition plasma display. Extremely light-weight, water-proof, and easy to wash with any commercial glass cleaner. The details, clarity and almost three-dimensional depth are simply unsurpassed. Custom sized prints are also available and can be float mounted and/or framed with rounded edges or custom shapes ranging from 4 inches to 8 feet. The archival images stability is also up to 4 times greater than that of traditional photo papers.
